moved...for now

I'm now here. For the time being... until I sort things out.

I may be moving...

Still flirting with the idea.

Any suggestions? Ideas? :)

oh. we do choose...

Choice choice choice choice choice.

I've said it over and over again, and I'll say it again. We always have a choice. ALWAYS.
If that didn't ring in LOUD and clear, here it goes again:


We tend to forget many times, that we have a choice in everything we do. Past, present and future aside, in taking any steps, we are given a choice to follow.
The excuse, "but there wasn't any other way....", "I was too tempted...", "I wasn't given any other choice" is just plain weak.

Until the day your hands, legs, and body are tied to puppet strings, and is being controlled by a puppet master, please, PLEASE don't say, "I couldn't help myself".

I've made mistakes. Countless times.

I'm learning to not say I was forced into the circumstances. I made choices which I'm not proud of that led me to make that mistake. That won't be my last one.

BUT, as soon as I realize that I'm responsible for my mess, the sooner I work towards correcting it.

So please. I beg of you. Please don't blame the situation or surroundings you are in. Be responsible.

when choosing...

We all have a choice. We all have a part to play some way or another. However, we need to be willing first. Can we truly be used if we don't want to be used?

I believe everyone should be given a fair chance, and in that, a fair amount of help given and time. If one were to get more just because they did not want to budge in the first place, it's tough. Being merciful if one was not quick to adapt and needed some extra help, but is willing to go the extra mile just to improve, is a whole different story from one who doesn't want to be moved at all.

If there are two bulls in the field, given one is really strong, and has lots of potential to all the work in the field in half the time, versus another which wasn't as strong, but was very obedient, which would you pick? Especially when there is only a day to do the work, no one would half expect the farmer to soothe the bull and ease it into work. Rather than hope something could be done quickly, sure the most logical way out would be to pick the one that is easier to work with.

Sure. We can discuss about compassion, and that this kind of thinking lacks it, but coming back to the bull that has to work the field; if a dredge was attached to it, and it chose to go its own way, the whole field would be messed up.

If we are given important parts to play, and we choose not to follow, will the parts then come to succession into a bigger picture?

Obedience before sacrifice. The last will be the first. Pride to not yield will be opposed.

Will it not?
